Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell
Some of the ribbon winners from our 2013 Quilt Show. Click on the photo to see a larger view.
It's potluck time again, so that means our July meeting will start at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00. Please check the current newsletter to find out the details about the potluck and the president's challenge "Life's A Beach".
Please note that the correct food suggestion for the potluck is as follows: If your last name starts with A thru J, bring dessert; last names K thru R, bring a main dish; and last names S thru Z, bring a salad.
Please also mark your calendars for the August 9th "Sweat Shop" where guild members will make quilts for the Cancer Center. We promise you'll have fun and you don't actually have to sweat if you don't want to! See the newsletter for details, or contact June DeVries if you have questions.
We'll see you soon.
Please join us at our June 9th Guild meeting
at First Presbyterian Church 6th & Nebraska at 7:00 pm.
You'll be happy you worked your way through the downtown road construction because we have a special program featuring Roxanne O'Hare, owner of the Cosmic Cow quilt shops in Lincoln and Seward, NE. She'll be bringing a trunk show, as well as fabric to sell, so don't miss out!
Also, try to attend the Omaha Quilt Guild's show from June 19-21. Visit their website at: www.omahaquiltersguild.org for the place and times.
See the current newsletter for other information about the Guild, and we'll see you on June 9th.
Spring Has Sprung! so plan on coming out to our May 12th Guild Meeting at 7:00 at the First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska. New members are always welcome. The program will feature Barbara Hoff from Madison, SD. Barbara will bring along some of the 200 quilts she has made, specifically her wool applique quilts, and will share her tools, tips and tricks during the program.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to guild member Rita Swain, who's having a birthday celebration on May 4th. Check the current newsletter for more details.
2 area quilt guilds are having shows soon-- Orange City (May 15-16-17) and Omaha (June 19-20-21), so plan on attending if you can.
